  Siemens is developing a novel compact DC electrostatic tandem accelerator and currently building a prototype. A dedicated H ion source for this accelerator has been designed and built. This paper reports on some of the design features as well as results of the commissioning phase of this filament driven DC multicusp volume H ion source. Stable H currents of more then 300 μA at 10 keV have been extracted. This satisfies the beam current requirement of the novel accelerator.
